The monster is confused. He doesn’t understand his feelings. Luckily, his friend, a little girl, can teach him how to sort out how he feels! This is a children’s game in which the players find colors that represent different feelings (Calm, Anger, Fear, Sadness…) and need to find where to keep them. They try to choose the object that can hold the feeling they’ve found, and then talk about a situation where they have felt that feeling before.
Players in The Color Monster collaborate to help the Monster figure out his emotions. In turns, they roll the die that allows them to move the Monster around the board. When the Monster goes to a space with an emotion token, the player can pick it up and look for the right jar. The jars are placed on shelves with their colors hidden. If the player chooses the jar which matches the color of the emotion, then they can place the emotion token into the jar. To pick up an emotion token, players have to explain a memory or a situation in which they feel like the emotion they are picking up (Happiness, Sadness, Anger, Fear, or Calm).
